In the present experiment, natural protozoan fauna and other microbial components in water extracts from shortgrass prairie soil were separated on the basis of size by differential filtration (8-, 5-, and 3-μm porosities). All extracts contained bacteria and fungi, along with a few very small flagellates (3-μm pore size filtrate); flagellates and a few small amoebae (5-μm pore size filtrate); and flagellates, small amoebae, and small ciliates (8-μm pore size filtrate). All microorganisms… CONTINUE READING
